   February 22, 2013,  the fifth-grade students from Canyon Elementary participated in their annual Wax Museum of United States Presidents and Wives.  Each student researched the president or president's wife that they were representing and prepared a short speech with interesting facts to share about that person.  Each fifth-grade classroom was set up as a wax museum so students from all of the other classes in the school could attend.  The fifth-grade teachers acted as tour guides and would press the buttons on the desks bringing the figures to life.
